Tryon Block House SteepleChase

April 15, 2017

Welcome spring with picnics, sundresses, elegant hats, tailgating, family gatherings, and the sounds and sights of thoroughbreds thundering past. The Block House is the longest running steeplechase in North Carolina, occurring continuously since 1947. The National Steeplechase Association sanctions four of the races.

The race is at a new location this year. The Tryon Riding & Hunt Club (TR&HC) and Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) have teamed up for a bigger and better location with a one-mile track (about five miles from the TIEC complex). This year's race will have a total purse of $150,000 - the highest in the history of the event.
